[click photo for gallery]
So yea a while back I bought a bunch of emates on ebay, and fixed them up etc. I have a box of parts left over - and I realized they'd make a very quick and sweet little computer-on-the-wall like my afterdark machine. So I made one into a nice big clock, which is nice because I wanted a big clock too. This time I spent no time mounting the parts in a case, I just have one screw holding the screen to the board, and tape holds the rest of the weight of the screen. And then there's two screws into the wall to hold it up. You can see it all in the gallery.
The software that is drawing the big digital clock is Sean Luke's BigCountdown which draws a very spiffy big timeometer. (mad props to Sean)
Oh yea and because the thing has a battery pack, I can unplug it without loosing the time right away -- unlike those damn clock radios!!! w000.
